It’s been January for nearly a week, which means that Christmas is now a distant memory. But for many people, one vestige of the holiday remains: the Christmas tree. So when is the right time to take it down?
For some, there are religious reasons to keep it up. Today, January 5, is traditionally the 12th day of Christmas, and therefore, the final day for the tree. Others wait to celebrate the Epiphany on January 6. And there are those who commemorate Jesus’ baptism on January 10. But for some, resolving when to take down the Christmas tree is an annual enigma.
